What are you reading right now?

I’m reading “What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast” by Laura Vanderkam.

What spurred you to read that book?

I saw a pop up ad on-line for it.

Has anything in it stuck with you?

Do not start your day by responding to emails. We all wake up and our minds start making to-do lists for the day. Very often we will have new ideas we would like to attempt to launch. If you wake up, grab your smart phone and start reading emails that came in while you were sleeping, you will no doubt be spending quite some time reading and, of course (because we are all human), responding. By the time you are done, you have lost the edge and the day has started. Not only has a fair amount of time elapsed, but you are now in work mode or possibly defense mode. Instead, grab your smart phone and send emails to your team members and associates with your ideas, suggestions, initiatives and to-do lists (play some offense and try and score some points). This may take you a few minutes, but no need to worry. When you are done, those emails you haven’t read and replied to will still be there waiting for your reply. While you are now responding and dealing with someone else’s needs, others are working on yours.
